The bill: Simple Minds supported by The Cult, The Waterboys (both of whom I also loved), The Bangles and In Tua Nua. Coolest moment of the day: a loaded beer can propelled from the crowd with uncanny accuracy straight towards the head of The Cult's drummer mid-set, only for Ian Astbury to nonchalantly pluck it from the air in front of the drum riser without breaking stride or noteā€¦

Simple Minds were my favourite band between 1983 and '86, until their late-80s bombast finally throttled them and I transferred my allegiance to R.E.M. for the next 5 years...

@stevefawcett I'm unable to jam the first band I went to see as a lot of their early live stuff is blocked but just in case you were interested it was the Happy Mondays at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge summer/autumn time in 1989. My friends and I had finished our 'A' levels that year and 'Hallelujah' was in the charts :)
